Create Custom Icons in Two Easy Steps

And those two steps should now involve anything more than step 1: drag and step 2: drop. I do not know about you, but I am the kind of person that gets very easily bored with the basic, default icons on my desktop, and whenever a piece of software comes along that lets me create personalized icons by means of drag and drop, I go for it all the way.

The software I am talking about is called ToYcon 0.5 and is one of two freeware products to be developed by Lefreut (the other is called TrueTransparency 0.9.4 and can be used to modify the windows border). Besides the fact that getting this piece of software will not cost you a thing, there are two other things that will undoubtedly catch your eye. The first is that it weighs in at just 186KB, so downloading it will take but a second, even if you have a lousy internet connection. The second is the fact that ToYcon 0.5 does not have to be installed on your machine, it will run “straight out of the box” (the pun was intentional).


Here is how the whole thing goes. After the download is complete, you will have to unzip the archive file that was downloaded to your desktop, or whatever other download path you specified. Open the folder and double click on the box-shaped icon. Go through your collection of pictures and find one that you would like to turn into an icon; simply drag and drop that picture onto the ToYcon box and the software will automatically turn it into an icon.

Here are a few other useful bits of info regarding ToYcon 0.6. It will work on any Windows-based operating system, even Windows NT. It offers multi-language support: English, French, Spanish, Italian, German and Portuguese. The software is extremely easy to use and it is perfectly suited for the task at hand.
